Lancaster Area Shared Youth Ministry Begins!

The Lancaster area United Methodist Churches held their first shared youth gathering event tonight at Shalom UMC.  We shared a dinner, played games, talked about some future shared youth ministry ideas and concluded with prayer and a fun benediction.

Our next event will be a youth live Christmas nativity on the lawn of Shalom UMC along Rt. 33 in December so that people who drive by will see the good news of the birth of Christ. First UMC will be hosting a lock-in event on New Year's Eve. In the top picture, Rev. Craig Arnold is sharing some ideas for shared youth ministry.  The picture below was our closing prayer time. 

Having our United Methodist Churches share in ministry is one of our six vision focuses for 2013.  We're already off to a great start!
